Sleep is the Holy Grail of parenthood — yet most new moms and dads are shocked by how elusive slumber becomes once baby arrives. The designers at Hushamok know how important it is for moms, dads and newborns to catch some shut-eye, so they created a dreamy sleeping haven for baby in their Organic Baby Hammock and Stand. Designed to provide a cozy transition to life outside the womb, Hushamok’s organic hammock is an ingenious alternative to baby bassinets or cribs. The hammock‘s natural swinging and rocking motion helps induce sleep and enables baby to sleep longer. Babies suffering from infant colic and reflux will also be especially comforted and relieved by the constant swaying motion.  The hammock comes with two matching organic sheets, and a mattress that is entirely free of flame retardants. The stand is crafted from sustainably harvested European Beechwood, a wood chosen especially for its wear-resistance and strength, and is held together with aluminum castings, which receive top marks for durability, recyclability and sustainability. Hushamok’s hammock and stand’s sleek design also makes it a gorgeous, aesthetically pleasing addition to any space.

We’re thrilled to be giving away this beautiful Hushamok Organic Baby Hammock and Stand worth $492 to one lucky Inhabitots reader.
